Braun´s house
Nov 2021
Secession house of the Žilina advocate JUDr. Arpád Braun and his wife Ida Wiesnerová is one of the most beautiful buildings at Andrej Hlinka Square. This important representative of the Jewish orthodox community was born in Žilina in 1877. He was studying at the local folk school, secondary grammar school in Žilina, secondary grammar school and legal faculty in Budapest and Kluž in today Romania, where he was awarded an academic degree. After demolishing two smaller bungalows on one of the most attractive plots in the town, a construction of a house according to the design prepared in 1909 by Izidor Szerdahelyi was supposed to begin in 1911. However, the firm of Jozef Junek started building the house only on 18 May 1914, when the building permit was issued, and the construction was not completed until 1920. From 1914 to 1920 wooden scaffolding was standing around the house. A new building permit was issued and the building company of Jozef Nosko completed the house in 1921. On 17 November the final building approval was issued. The lengthy construction process was caused by a dispute about the building line and a dispute with the previous land owners, what was a very unusual situation for that period. It was difficult to determine the building line of the house at the interface of three forming streets – Farské schody (Parsonage stairs), today Hlinka Square and the connection street of Kálovská Street. The streets were only being formed and 146 m2 of the Braun family’s plots were nationalised for such purpose. Plots of other owners were nationalised as well in order to make space for a new road connecting the today Národná Street, Hlinka Square, Kálov and Hurbanova Street.
